dc.description.abstractThis treatise is an examination of the marimba solo literature and playing techniques of Julie Spencer. Ms. Spencer has composed fourteen solos for marimba in which she incorporates elements of jazz improvisation, world music, and a number of her own techniques which she collectively refers to as "Spencer Technique". The treatise begins with a biographical background of Ms. Spencer and her career. This is followed by a chapter dedicated to examining her unique techniques for marimba. These techniques are demonstrated through the use of video segments imbedded in the document which is in html format. The treatise then examines each of her fourteen solos providing both an introductory survey and addressing special technical demands relating to her playing techniques.
